Sun Country is blessed with four true seasons – each one distinct and offering a surprising range of activities and attractions.
As every golfer knows, every time is the perfect time to tee off. With the lure of magnificent riverside fairways and manicured greens, Sun Country offers some of the best golf in the world. Cruising our rivers and lakes, sampling fresh produce direct from the farm gate, and spending time with family and friends are also popular all year round.
No matter what time of year you visit, you’ll be spoilt for choice in the Sun Country on the Murray.
